Had lunch here with my sisters. I got the turkey burger which was a risk I admit. It looked to be frozen and was terrible. The side salad had no flavor, I couldn't even tell if it was dressed. My sister got the Southwest salad the chicken was so tough it was hard to cut. Lastly, the place was empty...... More

This is fine dining at it's best. We ate here for a lunch. They had an opened face prime rib sandwich that blew our minds! Perfect ice tea, and Orange creme brûlée for dessert that was the best ever! Wonderful service too. We recommend it highly.

We have only had drinks at the bar but the service both times has been great. I'm addicted to their fresh raspberry mojitos. They have a nice selection of beers and great seasonal offerings. We would definitely return.

Here for brunch, told we could seat ourselves on patio, waited quite awhile to get water and menus. Ordered chorizo and eggs but, when it arrived, there was no evidence of meat whatsoever. Was like it had been pulverized in food processor. Pitiful!!

I really wanted to love this place - and it is really good. Here is what works: 1) The service is outstanding - really wonderful 2) The atmosphere and location - Geneva is beautiful as is the restaurant 3) Some of the dishes - Go when they have Prime Rib. You must have this - melt in your mouth good.... More

Forgot my soup entirely! Never got it. Beers took 10 minutes to come to the table. Steak for father in law was way under cooked. He asked for medium rare. Went on a Sunday night, so not busy. No real excuse fr slow service. Many times store this place has excelled. Thy need to pull their socks up, big time!?,... More

We come here every now and then and its been a long time since our last visit. I have to say they are consistently good. Great service and there is a nice large bathroom for diaper changes. I had a southwestern salad and the chicken breast was moist and tender. Their steaks however are always highly recommended.

Had dinner in May with a colleague. We called and got a last minute reservation on a Saturday for dinner. There is free parking in the area. The entrance is a bit tricky to find, but once we arrived we were promptly seated. The restaurant is attractively decorated. The menu is varied in its offerings. I try to avoid gluten... More

We had my daughter's rehearsal wedding dinner here..I chose it blindly because I live so far away. Not good...please check out other places to have big groups in Geneva before settling for this place. We had 57 people and rented their private room and we were all crammed in. Service was S.L.O.W, so we had plenty of time to visit... More
